Betting Analysis.

The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five games of this matchup, and both teams will be desperate to stay in the Big 12 race. The over has hit in 11 of the last 14 meetings, but both teams are without playmakers on offense.

Look for this game to be full of points, but more of them from the visitors.
